Close Encounter With a Mountain Lion in Montana Wilderness

Occurred on December 16, 2022 / Checkerboard, Montana, USA

Info from Licensor: "My husband and I went to track mountain lions and had been hiking over a mile in the woods in Montana. The numerous deadfall trees caused me to be behind, so my husband went ahead of me. I was continuing to try to catch up, when I noticed the mountain lion at the bottom of a ravine, slowly creeping. I grabbed my camera to capture the moment, and as soon as I started recording, the mountain lion switched directions and headed up the mountainside toward me. I just froze as it continued in my direction. The mountain lion finally sees me, about 15 feet away from where I was standing. It then hissed at me and after a few seconds (which felt like minutes) it changed direction and ran down the hill away from me. It shortly thereafter climbed a tree across the ravine from where I was standing."
